A lot of workers stay here and i got room near from outdoor common area and people keep party until midnight. Can't sleep until they done around 12-1am. Common room is very big which is not that good to interact with others.

I only stayed there again because the female dorm was available, which, from my experience, was the only room where other people respected it when you wanted to sleep at night. The air-con is switched on and off randomly, leaving the room either too hot or too cold. Would be nice to have control over it yourself, rather than having to ask the staff all the time to switch it on or off, as they often forget. Generally, clean and well-located , but also quite noisy and people getting drunk a lot.

Absolutely loved banjos. We stayed here for 3 weeks when we first arrived in Australia and we didn't want to leave - our first and best hostel. Good location, very clean, loads of space and things to do, huge kitchen and the staff were always helpful! And at a great price! You can't go wrong with banjos

it is a nice experience staying in Banjos,the kitchen is big which can allow many people cook in the same time. But the bedroom do not have wifi which is not very convenience.The staff are very nice too and very helpful.

Clean with good facilities - loved games/TV room. However on arrival (at 1:00am!) I was given piles of sheets & pillows & told to make my own bed, so couldn't slip quietly into bed like I'd hoped without disturbing the others. The location was not central but was very close to free buses and the train station so that was fine. The kitchen was poorly equipped - perhaps have crockery to rent? There weren't plates, bowls, mugs etc. The clothes drying area stank - relocate so not over a sewer?!

Friendly staff, clean hostel. Short walk to the free cat bus and train station. I had an early check out, but the staff makes sure that someone is there when you check out to give your bond back.

I couldn't recommend this place for anyone that's just passing through Perth, such as myself. It's full of people living there long-term and working in the area and it gives it a very different vibe to what I was after. It can be hard to get to meet people and you constantly feel as if you're encroaching on someone else's territory. Also, the kitchen equipment is inadequate, there are too few showers and a laughable number of plug sockets in the large dorms, which are extremely messy. Not fun.

Excellent hostel with amazing staff and a huge common area and kitchen which is always clean.

Solid hostel, gives you everything you need. The common spaces weren't my favorite, but they were decent. Good kitchen facilities, would get pretty crowded at the expected times but they have a ton of people staying there, so it's not a surprise. Close to the CBD and free buses.

There wasn't much of an atmosphere, the common room is really big so people naturally sit by themselves instead of being 'forced' to join others. Staff was really helpful, toilets & showers were ok.

Big hostel. Many permanent resident which aren't easy to get in touch with since they already have their own group. Massive common area which aren't best to meet people. Stay in the 24 bed dorms. It's big ! Lots of space to put your bags. Good security (electronic key access to the premise and rooms) + lockers in the room. Breakfast is minimal (only toast and jam) and often jam was empty (then you must cross the all building to ask for more...)
